And the lawmaker of the year with the most stupid legislation is...

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

Tennessee Republican State Senator Stacey Campfield of Knoxville. Trust me, there was stiff competition for the title, but Campfield beats out his Republican comrades who have a long and dishonorable history of concocting some of the worst legislation, not to mention ideas, known to humanity. 

Whether it’s proposing that the bodies of rape victims can somehow defy basic biology and stop themselves from becoming pregnant…

No doubt about it, the insane are running the asylum

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

I wasn’t totally shocked when I arrived at the corner of the bus stop yesterday and saw that the bench in front of the little convenience store had disappeared. After all, just a couple months ago, the Castro Benefits District took away the benches at Harvey Milk Plaza, another nearby transit stop, because the neighboring condo owners didn’t like the homeless and those they perceived to be homeless sitting and sleeping on…

Shameless self promotion is next to godliness

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

 

Music hath power to soothe the savage beast. For me, that beast lives within my own soul. Anyone who knows me is familiar with that raging beast. 

I become easily unglued by things that are happening in the world. Both locally and nationally. Politics is a cesspool. A lot of morally deficient individuals out for all that they can get. Doesn’t matter who they step on, as long as they can live high and mighty.…

Founder of Parents of Gays dies: remembering Jeanne Manford

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

Mortality makes no sense

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

Mortality. The most frightening and beguiling reality that any human has to face about him/herself. What sense does it really make? None that I can imagine.

Being an atheist since I was 16, the Thor-like bully in the clouds threatening us with everlasting hell fire as a way to make us do what he demands vanished from my life a long time ago. It’s all bets off once I close my eyes for that final time. Which, of course,…

Kardashian, Bieber, barf!

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

In the land of the forever shallow and meaningless, news is that Kim Kardashian and her hubbie plan to be “hands on” with the baby that she is carrying. Already she’s been offered millions to allow cameras to record her pregnancy up to the kid’s actual birth.

Meanwhile, that annoying teen star, Justin Bieber, is advocating stronger anti-paparazzi laws because a photographer was killed trying to shoot a pic of the…
